Rick Perry: Proof that the mainstream media has a RIGHT-wing bias


1. Sordid and disreputable.
2. Shabby and squalid: "a seedy apartment building".

Above is the definition for the word "seedy" from

"Seedy" is also the word used by Rick Perry to describe the capitol of our nation, Washington, D.C.

His statement in its entirety (lest I be accused of taking him out of context):

"Look, I am not an establishment figure -- never have been and frankly I don't want to be. I dislike Washington. I think it's a seedy place."

How I yearn for the pleasant days of Reagan, when the Republican running for the Presidency "simply" wanted a small government. 

Now the poll-leading candidate among the pack of eccentric, electrifying, terrifying and hilarious Republican candidates leaves us to understand that he thinks Washington, D.C., of the Lincoln Memorial, of the Washington Monument, of the Pentagon, Capitol Building, Smithsonian, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, cherry tree blossoms, National Zoo, etc., etc., etc. is shabby and squalid.

OK, now imagine if, say, Barack Obama or Michelle Obama made a statement like this. I think that, at a minimum, Fox News would be expressing outrage on a daily basis for weeks.

They don't love America.
They don't believe America is special, exceptional.
They apologize for America.

 and so on.

Well, you can bet that Rick Perry won't apologize for America. He'll just say it's seedy.

Hell, maybe that's the way he likes it.
